72moonglum's WIP

Recommended Posts

So finally had time to work on this, and have it just about finished.  The last thing to do was the shield and I ended up getting stuck as to what to put on it, so as it seems to be my odd pattern, threw a face on it.  Next thing to do, throw some finish on it, base it and it will be done (hopefully).

Yeah, last night I based him (photos coming soon) and thought about a bit of snow on it, but I really didn't want to freeze his nether parts.

So now that those are finished, back to the clerics.  Don't know how well this is going to show up on the camera and it's only in its beginning stages in any case.  Did linen white, then a wash of ghost white, then the gamut of dark elf fleshes (highlights, the mid-tone and shadow), then some walnut brown.  Highlighted it with pure white.  There's a cross on his chest, still trying to figure out what color that's going to be.  Most probable is going to be red, but always willing to take suggestions.

 

Next must move on to metal....  Oh, the pain, and I'm running out of rainy and cloudy grey.  Need to order some more paint soon....

So laying down my metal colors....

 

The thought is two good clerics, two not so good cleric (evil, maychance?)..  So I'm going to paint the two in the grey armor with more traditional Medieval looking colors, whites and reds, and the two other ones will have black and purple armor and then more live colors with their clothing.

So finished the colors for the female cleric's armor last night. The other cleric I did over the weekend. Not so sure if the purples on the chick turned out exactly how I wanted them but will keep plugging on. The next step is going to be the grey armor from the other two clerics and the chain mail on these two.

Took this with my iPhone this morning after seeing the lunar eclipse. Slightly out of focus now that I see it on a larger screen but oh well...

I'm really liking the purple armor on that cleric. I'm not sure what your original plan was but I think that it looks really sharp and is quite suitable for a more evil aligned cleric

Really like the purples, and the unity you get in your miniature painting.

Sometimes the colors clash together and you have to mid tone them to get a feeling

like they belong together, your color choices are more natural, and balanced.

Really great to see that !

Colors "Feel" good.

These are really good! I hate that I keep missing these WIP threads! I swear, you take a day or two off from the forum and you miss a lot of great thread. I'm loving these transitions and tones that you're laying down. It's a very clean and unique style! I'm looking forward to seeing more!

So starting to work on the metal colored metal now.  I started out with cloudy grey, then did a wash of ashen blue, then Templar blue, then ritterlich blue.  As I look at the photo, it doesn't seem as drastic as it does in live right under my lamp, so who knows where this is going?  My next washes will probably be the dark elf triad, with some storm grey thrown in there somewhere, maybe walnut brown, then black finally.  Moving upwards, I'll probably highlight with rainy grey, then misty gray, then ghost white, then pure white.

 

I'm also throwing a photo of Yephima in there too, as I started her armor as well.  With Bones, and take into account that this is the only Bones I've ever painted, it seems sometimes hard for the material to want to grasp the base coat, even with primer. This is with about four layers of paint already.

 

Anyhow, hopefully this weekend I'll be able to continue working on the metals....

Oh Wow, Fantastic Hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I admire anyone that can do what you just did there.

I screw up hair instantly, then spend forever UNDOing what I started out with.

Like the undercoat layer you put on also !

That is so well done :)

Great Job !

      Another deep dive into the abyss...
       
      This infernal figure was torture to pin and glue, and the storage of it is devilishly tricky because of the super bendy spear.





      I really wish that minis produced with pole arms / spears would use a bit of stiff wire overmolded with the pole arm / spear casting.
       
      I have had to adjust this spear so many times. I must have done something really evil in my last life...

      I ain't even gonna try to feed this beastie lemongrass...
       
       



      Known for its deathgaze and horrific flatulence, it was universally feared by adventurers.
       
      But, if some brave adventurers would gather milk, the local creameries would produce Death cheese.
      I was surfing through some posts and saw the catoplebas mentioned, so I thought that someone might enjoy seeing one.

      I've been rummaging through my mini hoard and found all kinds ancient treasures, boxed sets with the original inserts!
       
      My stupid question is this, is anyone interested in photos of the boxed sets for identification purposes? The collection goes back to the early 80's and is from a plethora of companies.
       
      If members are interested in miniature identification, then should there be a dedicated thread where members can post pics of their boxed sets and still carded minis? Or is there already a thread for mini identification?

      After completing my Reaper training kits, I'm ready to start tackling my old 80s lead minis from my youth.  I tried painting a couple when I was twelve years old and failed so miserably I literally thought there was no way I would ever be able to even attempt this hobby and it was just better left to others with more talent.  Thanks Reaper for making the awesome training sets and helping me try again after over 35 years.  So without further ado I begin digging into my vault from the 80s.  Apologies if this forum is for Reaper products only, no insult intended.
       
      So I think this baddie might be a Ral Partha Hill Troll, but not sure. Anybody have some insight?

      Continuing to dig up my childhood minis... This crazy old dragon was done back in 1984, I basically dunked him in turquoise enamel.  While not sophisticated, the color was beautiful and it's one of my all time favorite sculpts so I left it intact and decided to try adding some details. Results below!
